Pink Yet Lavender is from the Mariah Carey collection that came out the beginning of 2013. When the Mariah Carey collection came out I was completely distracted by the introduction of the liquid sand polishes. I completely ignored the rest of the collection! I’m glad I had the opportunity to pick this one up now. It’s absolutely gorgeous in the bottle.
Color blindness does run in my family so perhaps I’m missing something but the name of this polish makes zero sense to me. Pink Yet Lavender has large, pink hex glitter and small holographic silver glitter suspended in a clear base. While there is something pink about this polish there’s not much in the way of lavender.
The formula of Pink Yet Lavender is fantastic. It applies smoothly and the glitter distributes fairly evenly. I didn’t have to use a toothpick to manipulate glitter placement. This is, of course, a glitter top coat. I used two coats of Pink Yet Lavender in all my swatches.
At first I thought this might be similar to OPI Teenage Dream. Turns out, they’re really nothing alike. It’s more similar to Spoiled Jewelry Heist. Though, Jewelry Heist is nowhere near a dupe. Turns out this glitter is pretty unique. At least for my collection 🙂
While it’s been ages since I’ve seen any of the Mariah Carey collection polishes in stores, Pink Yet Lavender is still available various places around the web including Ulta, drugstore.com and Walgreens.
Below the jump there are swatches of Pink Yet Lavender over Cuccio Seduced in Sorrento and China Glaze Queen B. I liked both manicures but I think I liked the Queen B manicure just a bit better. It was the perfect manicure to brighten up a Monday.
